Today’s Play: An Experiment in Trying New Video Games

Back in January, I wrote about my video game backlog and how desperately “in the hole” I was. I’m doing a bit better now, thanks to the fact that I knocked out a few of the games on my list (Wind Waker HD, BioShock Infinite, Portal 2, The Stanley Parable). Unfortunately, a significant backlog still remains.

My situation got me thinking — what can I do to get myself to at least *experience* some of these titles? That’s half the battle, really. Starting something new can be tough. And when you’re like me, and you find it hard [...]

New Samsung Tablet Image Leaked

A new Android tablet from Samsung has leaked onto the Internet, and it shows that the competition for the dwindling tablet market is still happening. The image appeared on the @onleaks Twitter account on Sunday, with the label that it’s Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2, with a measured display of 9.7 inches.

The leaker says the new tablet was designed with the Galaxy S6 in mind.

Another tweet from the France-based leaker says that the new tablet was inspired by the Galaxy S6 smartphone, which is currently [...]

Apple Watch Hacked to Run Web Browser

The Apple Watch is, in essence, a teeny smartphone you strap onto your arm. As such, it’s possible to run programs on it like any other device armed with RAM, a processor, and a hard drive. One enterprising hacker going by the name Comex has set his sights on the Apple Watch and loaded it up with a web browser—and the results, as expected, aren’t exactly heartening.

There’s got to be an easier way to search Google.

The problem, of course, is that despite being a small computer, there’s [...]

All Customer Service Should Be Like This

Yesterday I had jury duty for the first time in my life. Yesterday was also the day I was expecting my Milanese Loop band to be delivered from Apple. So as you can imagine the fact that I knew when I got home yesterday I’d be welcomed by my shiny brand new Apple Watch band is what kept me sane throughout the day at jury duty.

Anyway, at about 3PM I got a notification saying it had been delivered. Yay! When I finally got home, I went directly to the package room and started looking around for the delivery…only I [...]

Android M to Give Users More Privacy Controls

That didn’t take long: hot on the heels of Google’s tacit confirmation that Android M would make an appearance at I/O later this month, Bloomberg reported that the new version of the mobile OS would offer greater control over a smartphone’s privacy settings.

According to the report, some Google insiders say that Android M will “give users more detailed choices over what aps can access,” which includes “photos, contacts or location.” That’s significant since so many apps that users download come with a laundry list of user [...]

1st Nintendo Smartphone Game Slated for Late 2015

Nintendo outlined some more specifics in its plans to begin developing smartphone and tablet games on Friday, announcing via its latest financial results briefing that the first such title would hit before the end of this calendar year. We can also expect to see a total of five games by March of 2017.

Yup: five games in a little under two years.

That’s not amazing in terms of output! But, it also seems to signal a commitment on Nintendo’s part to making sure that it doesn’t just pump out shovelware that no one will want. [...]

From Under the Hood to Over Your Roof: Powerwall, Tesla’s Solar Solution

According to Elon Musk, your home’s sustainable energy solutions shouldn’t be limited to a wood burning stove and candlelight. Imagine instead a rechargeable battery that draws power from sunlight during the day and provides that electricity throughout the night and into the next morning. Then, as sun rises anew, the cell recharges, and the cycle continues for as long as the cell is maintained. Musk described this innovative battery system at the unveiling of “Tesla Energy,” a new Tesla initiative which plans to [...]
